Dog in Still Life

I recently visited an art exhibition held as part of the Maldon in winter 2017 festival held from the 1st to the 16th of  July.

I found myself contemplating still life paintings of objects with shiny surfaces, fruit and drapery.

The paintings inspired me to create my own collaged still life. I couldn’t resist including the image of the cheeky dog sitting up to its breakfast tray.

    • Thank you, Gail. I am happy you appreciate the picture.

  2. What a VERY fascinating collage!! I love the “cheeky” dog!!

    • Hi Lori, Yes, the dog is full of personality. Usually creatures depicted in still lifes such as birds and game are dead.

  3. This is fun. I love the dog. I really like the photo in your blog header too. I have a similar view where I live with the hills in the background and the communication towers.

    • Hi Laura, Mt. Alexander dominates the local countryside and lends its name to the Shire of Mt. Alexander where Castlemaine is situated.

  4. Wonderfully inspired Margaret! Love the cheeky dog

    • Thank you. The dog in the collage reminds me of terrier dogs like Fred and Katie – up for a bit of fun.

  5. Very jolly, clever you.

    • Hi Susan, I am glad you like the picture. I like the way the coffee cup serves as a vase.
